I broke down and joined the bandwagon. I purchased two Echo Dots the other day. When they first came out, I was very much against anything of the sort. I was paranoid about them listening to everything we say. Not that it’s a major deal, we aren’t doing anything illegal or concerning. It’s just uncomfortable. Not to mention, a few other disturbing things I heard … Continue reading Alexa. Was I Just Paranoid?
I have mentioned to a few of my friends and family members that I review items on Amazon. In return, I get my money back for those items. Not one of them have been the slightest bit interested. In hearing about it, and much less in participating themselves. I completely get it. It’s not for everyone. The two responses I have received was that I … Continue reading $400+ In Free Products, So Far
I somehow went from very rarely cooking some extremely basic items, to cooking 2 meals a night for dinner. I never learned to cook. It was all hands on disasters. I tried to learn in my twenties, but was faced with more criticism than success. I pretty much didn’t care much after that. I got lucky over the years that I never had to cook … Continue reading Can Dinner Just Be Less Stressful?
I spent some time today cleaning up my site a little bit. I added a few things and updated others. If you have a moment, check out the new Welcome Guests page and be one of the 1st to comment. I am looking forward to having this platform to interact more in the future. I will probably change the name of it at some point. … Continue reading Stop By And Say Hi
Against my better judgement, I ventured out today. I had to. We were really low on groceries. I packed my sanitizer, got my mask on, and shoved my anxiety down as far as I could. The amount of people that are still out and about is amazing to me. I just don’t understand it. Whether, I chose a bad time or not. There shouldn’t be … Continue reading Is It Just Me And My Anxiety?
I wanted to send out a quick thank you to everyone. I’ve noticed a recent increase in the amount of traffic on my site. It’s been a while. This is really exciting to me, especially while watching the transformation of how much things have changed. I originally created this site voluntarily to help promote local bands and businesses. That was many years ago. I thought … Continue reading Thank You
I love to shop in general, especially on Amazon. I get packages several times a week. Most of which, I get my money back after I have reviewed them. I was skeptical at first. I’m still checking into other sites as well. So far, there are three companies that I have had successful transactions with. There has only been one time that I didn’t get … Continue reading Get Paid To Review Items
I took a survey on Toluna today that I thought I would share. It asked “What’s your mixtape for a road trip?” I don’t take enough road trips to relate, but I do love music. It almost always seems to make me feel better, no matter where I am and what’s going on. For me, my music list changes constantly. My musical interests are all … Continue reading My Current Go-To Music List
Since everyone has been home looking for things to do, I figured it was a great time to share some of my savings tips and where you can make a few extra bucks. I’ve done the hard part. You can find the apps that I’ve been using on my Cash Back & More page. Scanning Receipts: One way that I save money is by scanning … Continue reading Small Financial Tips – It All Adds Up
I’m trying my best to stay busy during this time of quarantine. Of course there’s always something to do. I’m never ever bored. Not sure how anyone could be with so much to do all the time. I am constantly racing against time to do as much as possible. I usually fail, but I keep trying. Those small wins, really do matter. Baby steps, right? … Continue reading Keeping Busy, Sane, And Safe
I knew it! I’ve been feeling so out of sorts and everything has been going wrong. I wondered, then dismissed it. I did my best to not assume what was happening, until I couldn’t ignore it anymore. I googled it and sure enough, I was right. We just went through a retrograde. Whether you believe in it or not, it’s happening all around us. Everyone … Continue reading Just Another Retrograde Passing By
I got through almost one week without my phone. I thought it would bother me more but I managed. I guess having an old tablet laying around helped a bit. I’m able to keep up with at least some of my rewards apps. However, some things have been slightly irritating. For example, going to Dunkin without being able to scan my app. Not so fun … Continue reading Going On A Week With No Phone…
This past weekend was an ongoing series of horrible train wrecks one right after the other. It may not have been so bad overall, but one of my mental medications ran out on Thursday and I never called the doctor Friday to have it refilled. I was a bit preoccupied so it slipped my mind. Friday was full of anxiety over the upcoming co-parenting session, … Continue reading One Train Wreck After Another…
Sometime soon, I plan to update the Share the Savings page. There’s several more sites to add that I’ve been using. I also realized that I added some that haven’t actually paid me yet. I tend to get side tracked and lose my train of thought. I really want to make a point to separate those that are legit, tried, and true. That’s the whole … Continue reading The Rewards Are The Reason
Every day is a new adventure. Some days, I’m frozen not being able to leave my bed, much less my house. I feel like an empty shell, just staring into space, while occasionally drifting off. I think my brain just goes into overdrive from thinking about everything that has to be done for the day. While other days, I can jump right out and face … Continue reading What Is Your Biggest Motivation?
I have never been on good terms with time. I tend to take on entirely too much and expect too much of myself. I’m constantly multi-tasking, trying to do it all at once, and fail miserably. I am always getting side tracked easily and can’t accomplish anything completely. I procrastinate constantly. I panic and can’t think straight. I’m also extremely forgetful. Add my multiple mental … Continue reading Maybe I’ll Get It Done, One Day
I really don’t have anything new today, other than I updated my post from yesterday since I forgot to add a link to my actual page and I’m still working out a few things to make this site look a little better. I spent the day showering my youngest daughter with Valentines’ treats and fun. I got her all sorts of gifts, we made pancakes … Continue reading Happy Valentines’ Day
I’m obsessed with saving money and making a couple extra bucks. There’s too many apps out there that will supposedly help. I’ve gone through so much time researching and stressing to better myself financially. I figured it was a good time to begin sharing some of the things I’ve discovered along the way. As with most things on my site, this Share the Savings page … Continue reading Skullshine Sharing Some Savings
If anyone is interested, we have several coins available for sale. I finally had a moment today to update the Numismatic page and also added a Coins For Sale page. My fiance Sully started all of this as a bit of a hobby, that turned into something that he could leave behind some day for my youngest daughter and I. He has been doing this … Continue reading Numismatic Updates
Now that I’ve spent a good portion of my day updating and rearranging my site, I can now write this and then accomplish a few things that I should have already done by now. I think I’m finally at a place where I can begin to actually blog more often and also add more content. I just needed to weed through all my old pages … Continue reading Ready To Finally Begin This Next Journey
